WWD and I have had this conversation on several occasions. We're both in love with the 71 sound.

Jerry rips in 71 and the Bettys are amazing.

I think 71, 76 and 78 get overlooked because they are surrounded by years whose reputations are mammoth.

It's gotta be tough to be the little brother of '70, '72 or '77. But, those who take the time to listen to 1971 will be rewarded with face-melt. Rock on!

Don't forget Phil! I love his tone and punch on those '71 boards.

When I was getting into the Dead in college, it was the "sound" of the Skullf*ck album and the jamming on Live/Dead that pulled me in.

but, but, the jams. where, oh where are all the jams? major reason i don't care for 71. i love the april fillmore east run, and of course the capitol theater run. the 10/31/71 dark star is one of the best ever, of course. 71 has it's moments, but i prefer 70, 72, and 73.

alot of the jams are within the song. Listen to the NFA>GDTRFB they used on skull and roses ( manhatten center i believe ), that is AMAZING stuff the way they weave in and out. And it's not like every jam they ever did is great some are going through the motions sometimes. I understand what you are saying but i really like the sound and tightness - only billy, keith on keys, and Bob coming into his own as an incredible guitarist, he's keep up that prominant allmost dual lead for the next three years

Mc G - I can't argue with you regarding jams. 71 is a year of tightened-up performances. I find the evolution of the sound from 71 to 72 amazing. The distance from here to there is greater than the time it actually took to make the trip. A musical wormhole.

I love 71. If anyone is getting into listening to live shows, 71 is a great place to start. I see why it isn't mentioned more often. It's not jam central station, the setlists are similar throughout, NFA>GDRFB over and over... Jerryless Jacks... BUT! Could there ever be 72, 73, 74, 77 without 71?
Dig the 4/10-15 jaunt through PA.

I agree with you somewhat on that April jaunt through PA, however the band seems to get a little fatigued by the time they get to Bucknell and Meadville, playing 5 shows over six nights.

The Pittsburgh performance is the sleeper show of '71, in my opinion...

True the jamming was not as prevalent, yet two of the greatest jams ever played were pulled off in '71...

4/29/71 Alligator>>>CRS
8/14/71 Truckin>>TOO

I think the 4/29 jam stands up to anything the band ever did in any era...PEace
